Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus runs between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy both events in one day.

July 17: Form, Function, and Flow

A team of museum staff and local volunteers has been transforming the Surface Gallery into a skateable space, complete with a new skate sculpture.

Skate demo: Watch a select group of skaters "interpret" the new space with their boards for the first time.
Gallery hunt: Visitors to both museum campuses can try to find similarities between the skate sculpture and an iconic piece in the museum's collecton.
Accessorize: Kids will get to make their own skate-inspired personalized button and/or stickers.
Skate art: Check out a mini-display of skateboards.

Looking ahead:

August 21: Go for the Gold!
Let the Olympic competition continue at the Spalding House pool. Kids will make a float and race them, and then create a medal to celebrate their win.
